Nine red pond

The ponds have been a struggle this year. The warm weather means higher than normal water temperatures. Water temperature affects chemical and biotic factors like photosynthesis, O2 concentrations, and stratification. These factors play a role in pH, nutrient release, and respiration.
The aquatic community is very complex and dynamic. Most shallow ponds need supplemental oxygen in the form of a fountain or a bubbler.
The panel shown in the photo has recently been updated to allow for a fountain in nine red.
As you can see in the photo, it was in dire need of an overhaul.
We hope to have the fountain installed soon and it should help with the anaerobic situation in this pond.
Something's fishy,
